Unfortunately, your photos did not come through. I won't be able to give you a precise answer. There are many things that cause these symptoms, so narrowing them down can be difficult. First, and foremost, you will want to test nutrient levels and pH levels of your soil. If those come back good, then a fungicide may be in order. Infections are common after rainy seasons, so if your soil remains too wet, then it can invite infection suffocate roots. Hollies tend to be more drought resistant than water logged soil resistant. One last thing to consider will be pests. I would inspect the area for insects. They can be a problem that leads to infection and damage.
